Mexico Electronics Manufacturing Industry

Electronics Manufacturing in Mexico

Tijuana has carried the crown as the global hub for television manufacturing and continues to do so as plasma, LCD and LED technologies evolve. Approximately 19 million high-tech TVs produced annually in Baja California alone. But there’s more than TVs to get excited about when looking at manufacturing in Mexico.

As the US closest  nearshore manufacturing opportunity, Mexico is also the world’s largest producer of smartphones. If a product has electronics, it’s being made in Mexico Coupled with the 115,000 engineering students Mexico’s higher education system graduates every year, global manufacturers and suppliers alike are flocking to Mexico for its favorable trading terms,  highly- skilled labor force  and proximity to US and North American markets.

Top Electronics Manufacturers in Mexico

Electronics manufacturers in Tijuana have been taking advantage of the highly-skilled, low-cost labor for decades. Coupled with favorable or zero tariffs via NAFTA (USMCA) and proximity to major markets, Mexico has been the top destination for global companies looking for a competitive advantage.

In 2012, Mexican based companies, including American multinationals, imported $199.9B US dollars in goods and services. From materials to electronic components, the over 200 electronics manufacturing companies in Baja California are ordering and  importing millions of products and raw materials for assembly and production with 40% being imported from US suppliers. Compared to $97.4B imported by Mexico a mere 10 years ago, the steady and stable growth of the electronics industry has brought suppliers and OEMs alike to the region.
